Now for something completely different.

I'd like to stream a virtual face-to-face game of MWIF on Twitch. This is not PBEM. Faces are not required though, only a microphone. The sessions will be broadcast live, and will possibly be re-posted to Youtube if I have time for posterity.

I think this could potentially welcome new players to the game as well as provide useful instruction to newbies.

Parameters: Players meet on weekends by arrangement to play MWIF. Minimum commitment of 3+ hours per session until one side resigns. I've played with a Chess clock in the past, but don't mind time used as long as the game is moving along. If I have more than one test subject (volunteer) we could have teams.

About me: I've played about 20 games of Wif over the last 20 years. That pretty much means, I'm crusty, rusty, and naughty.

The rules I prefer should be attached to this post.

Compulsory Peace has not yet been coded. May have to kludge that one.

Yeah, hoping to crib it together with amenable players.

Hi. I'm interested but I'm a newbie to WIF and MWIF.

I have been a board/wargamer since 1985 and have always known of WIF but never played. I bought MWIF few years ago but never found a reliable player and/or successful multiple sessions. I also attempted the discord MWIF group a few times but found it somewhat frustrating with then having to deal with using rolled-back versions of MWIF, saves files, and posted pictures/asking game questions for player interactions on discord.

Maybe this twitch method will be better experience?
Also, what is your twitch name? I watch Twitch alot with other wargames/boardgames/dnd stuff.
I have a twitch account too but I broadcast very very little.

Edit: I do alot of online wargaming sessions but its with vassal software(close to 20 years)

Sounds good. I'll send you a PM for scheduling and my contact information.

My twitch channel is AEternalEquinox. I also am the DM for a group of people playing D&D in my spare time :D

I've been having audio issues recently, so the recent streams either have me or are missing my voice. Think I have that issue corrected though.

As far as how we can play, I have setup a virtual machine dedicated for playing in Solitaire mode that we can both connect to. We can use discord or other app for voice. In between sessions I can give you the save so you can look at the map.

If anyone else is interested, feel free to post here. Makes the game move a bit faster.

Also, I'll post the scheduled game times on the forum so that people can stop by and chat on Twitch, or watch past sessions.

Hi Guys,

I am still looking for someone to join me in creating online content for this game. Am I a worthy opponent? Not likely :)

Cheers,

Z
